Narrow your Focus to a Smaller Target
If you want to increase your accuracy, try narrowing your focus to a smaller target. If you are trying to hit the first baseman, do not focus on the first baseman as a whole. Do not even focus on just his glove, instead, try to narrow your target to a small spot in their glove or maybe a specific thread near their chest. Narrowing your target will simultaneously narrow your vision and increase your accuracy.
It is incredibly important that you understand your maximum controlled velocity and remain in control of your body. You may be able to throw faster but a zippy ball will not make for a great play if it flies over and past your targets head. Instead, maintain control over your body and your throws to obtain maximum accuracy.
Following through with the throw is a simple and effective method to quickly improve throwing accuracy. Following the throw means making sure that you end your throw pointing towards your target. It may help to record a video of your throw so you can make sure that you are properly following through.
