Torii Hunter plops down in a leather chair in a room of his 19,900-square-foot, Mediterranean-style estate that is part sports bar, part shrine.

Three flat-screen TVs are tuned in to ESPN and MLB Network. A trophy case is filled with Gold Glove awards and an array of memorabilia. There's a pool table, bar and a life-sized cardboard cutout of the former Angels outfielder in action.

It's a dream room for any serious sports fan, but it's missing the one thing Hunter covets most, something the $135 million he's made in 14 big league seasons can't buy:

A World Series ring.

"When I wake up at 5:45 a.m. to work out, all I think about is that World Series ring," says Hunter, 37. "That's what's driving me. I've been searching for it all my life."
