SAN DIEGO (AP) - Tony Gwynn's agent says the Hall of Famer is joining movie producer Thomas Tull in an attempt to buy the San Diego Padres.

Agent John Boggs says Gwynn's role with Tull's group hasn't been defined.

Tull, the chairman of Legendary Entertainment, is among several people interested in buying the Padres. Majority owner John Moores announced last month that he was selling the team after minority owner Jeff Moorad abandoned his attempt to gain controlling interest.

Gwynn played for the Padres his entire 20-season big league career. He didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.

Gwynn currently is baseball coach at his alma mater, San Diego State. Boggs says it's too early to say what Gwynn will do if Tull is the successful bidder for the Padres. Boggs says Gwynn met with Tull last week.

A spokesman for Tull didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.
