Nationals baseball caps are starting to resurface like redbuds bursting out to capture the springtime sun, and the National Portrait Gallery (750 9th St NW) is capitalizing on the return of slugger season by tailoring this month’s “Face to Face” Portrait Talks around the collection’s catchers and batters. Tonight from 6 to 6:30, historian Sid Hart will discuss Susan Miller-Havens’ portrait of Carlton Fisk. Looking ahead: Curator Ann Shumard tackles Harry Warnecke’s depiction of Jackie Robinson on April 19, and on April 26 researcher Warren Perry riffs on Joseph Kernan’s painting of Ty Cobb. Both events are from 6 to 6:30 p.m. Visitors will meet at the Gallery’s F Street lobby (Eighth and F streets NW). Call 202/633-8300 or visit www.npg.si.edu.
