Possibly found the cause of my 700r4 clutch failure

Some of you may have seen my last thread, about my 700r4 that burned up the 3-4 clutch pack, i was asking about what could have caused the failure, and i think i figured it out!

I removed the valve body and i found one of the check balls was lodged in the separator plate, lots of wear around 2 of the check ball holes in the plate, one of the holes was worn so bad the check ball lodged itself in the plate, could this be what caused the 3-4 clutch pack to burn up? while the trans was in the truck it would drive in forward and reverse, however it would not shift out of 1st gear

So my question is, is that what caused the failure?
