Sandy Alderson faints during Wednesday’s press conference at Citi Field, but is ok
There was a scary moment at Citi Field involving the team’s General Manager on Wednesday.
While answering questions from reporters, Sandy Alderson appeared to lose his balance and was helped to the ground by the media as he fainted.
Alderson was out for less than a minute, when he suddenly and thankfully got back up and sat himself in a chair.
Alderson was in good spirits, was given water and walked out of the press conference room under his own power.
A team official said Alderson did not eat any breakfast, and the heat in the room combined with the lighting caused Alderson to faint.
Alderson was being seen by the team’s training staff and will likely visit with his own doctors as a precaution.
