He stares into home plate, working the ball, with that penetrating look that once struck fear in even the most jacked-up, steroid-soaked sluggers. That is pre-“Who’s Your Daddy” Pedro Martinez, the Yankee-killer who won three Cy Young Awards and dazzled the Fenway faithful until his 2004 exit. Today, we learned that the oil painting entitled “El Orgullo y la Determinacion (Pride and Determination)” will join another work featuring a famous Sox hero, Carlton Fisk, in the National Portrait Gallery.

Cambridge’s Susan Miller-Havens, author of the Fisk and the Pedro, sold “El Orgullo” for $35,000 a few years ago to legendary Boston-born baseball scribe Peter Gammons and his wife, Gloria Trowbridge Gammons. The couple have given the 57” by 21” work to the Smithsonian’s museum.
