Meet Blaze Jordan: The 15-Year-Old Baseball Phenom with 500-Foot Power "Bryce Harper was 16 years old when he landed on the cover of Sports Illustrated as the "Chosen One." In the story, Tom Verducci wrote about the long home runs Harper had already hit by then, including a 502-foot blast a few months before at the Power Showcase at Tropicana Field. "Jordan was invited to the same showcase when he was 11, and he has been back every year since. He won't turn 16 until December, but he has already broken Harper's record. ""As a 13-year-old, he hit two 500-foot home runs," says Brian Domenico, who founded and still runs the Showcase. "As a 14-year-old, he competed with all the top high school players. He hit 23 home runs, including one that went 504 feet. As a 15-year-old, he competed with the top college players and missed making the finals by one home run."
