New York Mets GM Sandy Alderson collapses during media session
Wednesday November 4th, 2015

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson collapsed while speaking with reporters Wednesday morning. 

Alderson, 67, did not lose consciousness and “was quickly helped to his feet,” according to the New York Daily News. Alderson felt lightheaded after not eating breakfast before the 11 a.m. press conference and is “fine now,” Tim Rohan of The New York Times reports.

Alderson was speaking with a group of reporters after a press conference to announce a two-year contract extension for manager Terry Collins. 

The Mets hired Alderson as their GM in October 2010, replacing Omar Minaya.
