He was a first baseman over parts of seven seasons with the Washington Senators, New York Highlanders and Brooklyn Superbas. He led the National League and tied for the major league lead in home runs in 1906, becoming the first rookie with a share of the major league home run crown (later joined by Mark McGwire in 1987 and Pete Alonso in 2019)[1] with Brooklyn, and won the NL home run title again in 1908.

Jordan also created and marketed a baseball-themed card game, the "T.J. Jordan In Door Card Game".[2] He was born and later died at the age of 70 in New York City.
