Last May, we told you the story of former NESN sports videographer John Martin’s battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS.
Now he’s written a book about his 19 years behind the scenes of Boston red Sox and Boston Bruins broadcasts.
It’s called “Waiting for Greatness.”
“I always maintained during my television career, I’d someday write a book chronicling my experience,” Martin told the local blog, Sports Rip. “Tried a few times but couldn’t get it going. Always knew the title. A year and half past retirement, I just started dictating one afternoon. It took me a month and a half to put together.”
Martin is now confined to a wheelchair. He was first diagnosed just last year.
According to SportsRip, his book sold more than 200 copies in its first day.
