Practice and focus on technique
As is the case with anything, the first thing you really need to do and must do, is work on your technique. This is because throwing the ball incorrectly is going to sacrifice velocity and this is going to cause your pitch to not float at the velocity that it could have been flying in at.
At the same time, the best way to be able to get your technique down to the level that you want, is to go out and practice as much as you possibly can. Not putting in enough practice won’t allow the technique to get stored in your brain and this can cause you to not perform to the best of your abilities.

Hit the gym
Pitching requires the use of your bicep, shoulder and triceps. This is because these three muscles accumulate to make up your arm and training them in the gym, is going to help you throw faster.
It is also important to remember that when you are in the gym, you are looking to build strength and not work on mass too much. Building too much mass will prevent you from being able to perform to the best of your ability and this is something you need to be very cautious about when weight training.
