 "A right-hand opening batsman, McAlister was probably more famous for his amazing 20-minute fist fight with the Australian Captain, Clem Hill, than his batting. McAlister's opposition to the appointment of Frank Laver as manager of the 1912 team to tour England led to the sensational fracas with Hill.

McAlister was nevertheless a fine batsman who continued playing club cricket until he was 52. He devoted much of his life to the game's welfare, serving as a state selector for 29 years and a VCA executive member for 28."
