Roy Park's place in cricket history was secured by the legend of how his wife bent down to pick up her knitting and missed her husband's entire Test career - he was bowled first ball in his only innings, against England at Melbourne in 1920-21. Park was a defensively-minded right-hand batsman whose formative years were interrupted by the war - he was named in Warwick Armstrong's 1914-15 touring side that never was - and then afterwards his medical commitments took up more and more of his time. In 1919-20 he scored 586 runs at 83.71 for Victoria but after his Test appearance he played 12 times in four seasons before drifting out of the game. His business interests were part of the reason, but his staunch support for Armstrong - who had taken him under his wing in Park's early career in Melbourne - in battles with the Victorian authorities also led to him being effectively ostracised. `Little Doc' was also a talented Aussie Rules footballer.
