Another one of those 'what if?' situations:

February 13, 1970 - Tragedy strikes the White Sox as promising young pitcher Paul Edmondson and his girl friend are killed in an accident on US-101 near Santa Barbara, California. On a rain slicked highway, Edmondsonís car skidded into on - coming traffic and was struck by another vehicle. In his major league debut in Anaheim on June 20, 1969, Edmondson fired a complete game two hitter beating California 9 - 1. It would be his only major league win.
