If you can still throw the ball normal at other times and have not developed a shoulder or elbow problem it is most likely a psychological problem. Many younger players (high school and younger) will basically over think about their throw, and in the back of their mind worry about making a bad throw. This will often result in "short arming" the ball, which makes it very hard to throw accurate. My best suggestion is to clear your mind and not worry about making a bad throw. Just field the ball and fire and you'll soon be back to your old self.
