    Your best chance in your first throw is by throwing the ball at air not aiming anyone of Steve or Andrew.

    Because in your first chance if you throw ball at Steve and got him hit then next Andrew will throw at you and you will definitely got out because Andrew chance of hitting is 100%

    and in your first chance if you throw at Andrew and got him out then Steve will throw the ball at you and in  half case you will got hit.

    And if you throw the ball at air Andrew or Steve will throw the ball at each other than you because they have more chance of hitting the target.

    So to increase in your chance you have to throw the ball in air in your first chance.[and also by throwing ball  at anyone of Steve or Andrew can cause them to throw back at you and make you out of the game]
