Part # 3 on the schematic you posted is not the same kind of bearing that is in your photo. The one in the photo is a ball bearing whereas the one in the schematic is a needle bearing.
Perhaps the destroyed ball bearing pieces came out of the oil drain hole? If so, the countershaft seal need not be removed for the bearing to find its way out of the engine.
#31 in the schematic I linked to is the countershaft bearing. There are several other ball bearings in that schematic as well. (9, 10, 30)
