Which year did Kubek get injured? What that in 1962?

Tony got called up to active duty right after the World
Series in '61. His first week in the Army, during a game
of touch football, he was upended while going for a pass.

He actually broke his neck, but didn't get any medical
help. It wasn't until 1965, after some tests for his back
trouble at the Mayo Clinic, that he learned the extent of
his injuries. The doctors warned him that any abrupt
movement, or a head-first slide could paralyze him, so
he retired at age 29.

He was only in 45 games in 1962, but that was because
of his Army service.

Didn't he get hit in the throat with a ground ball once? It may have
been during a world series.
