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.
Sandy joked afterward "OK, where were we?" But questions obviously stopped. He sat in a chair for a moment, then left room.— Adam Rubin (@AdamRubinESPN) November 4, 2015
