"OK, where were we?"

New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson passed out while talking to the media on Wednesday. 

The incident happened during the official end-of-season press conference. 

Numerous reporters covering the event shared the news over social media. 

The 67-year-old Alderson regained consciousness about 30 seconds after passing out, according to mets.com.

A team official said Alderson had not eaten breakfast and felt lightheaded due to the bright lights used for the press conference, according to the team's site. 

Alderson was able to leave the meeting under his own power and even joked to reporters.

The Mets lost the World Series to the Kansas City Royals in five games.
